A perspective on leading and managing organizational change

Abstract:
Organizational change poses significant challenges. Change itself is changing;
evolving in ways that present new rules, new strategies for winning, and more
and more dynamic complexity. This paper presents the principal drivers of change as
stand-alone entities and later discusses their interaction effects. Organizational Life
Cycle Change, types of change, capacity for learning, and the common causes of change
failures are explored to establish an understanding of the proclaimed enormity of the
change-failure issue and our difficulty in quantifying it. The paper concludes with
suggestions that will help organizational change agents improve their success rates.
